My problem is that they can put a hold on the back ground check if they think something is suspicious about the sell, so if they see that joe has bought 3 gun this week and thinks that's odd they put a hold on his back ground check. Or if they think he lied on the paper work they hold him. Now in some cases this may be a good thing but I am not sure I trust Wal-Mart to know who needs a gun and who don't


I don't think Walmart is the one putting the hold on. The guy at Walmart has no idea what or how many you have bought that is why they call it in.
I saw this with my own eyes. A Walmart closed in a town and they clearance their guns. Me and 3 other guys bought all they had. But one guy was smart enough to bring his wife, son, and daughter. The first 3 I bought were approved on the spot . The last three were put on hold. One was approved before I got home . The other 2 took a couple of days.

Oh yes got 3 bolt savages with scopes for 89 bucks each. Plus got 3 ruger 17 cal for 69 bucks each.
walmart can put a hold on if they feel the need to, thats the problem I have with it all.

I was 20 when walmart changed their policy on ammo sales and had been in the Army for 2 years already, I shoot skeet every week and used to buy my 12 gauge shells there because it was the best price near the base. Then one day I went up to the counter and they asked for my ID and said you canít buy these here, I found it quite ridiculous that the week before I was at the range with a SAW and 240 but I couldnít buy shotgun shells. I know a lot of others on here were over seas before they could drink a beer and to me thatís just not right. If youíre old enough for your country to send you to die thousands of miles away from home youíre old enough to buy a 1911 or a case of beer. Rant over


I agree.

Knee jerk reaction to all the other crap going on. Fist off no one under 21 can buy handgun ammo. Im going to guess that .22 cal is probably one of the biggest sellers and my kid cant go buy a box. Then they went to NO ammo under 21.Its a pain to have to buy my boys shotgun shells every time they need some. The best thing is to cut Walmart out. Yes they are cheaper on some things but your money goes further if you buy from local mom and pop stores . You can cound on both hands the number of times I go to Walmart in a year and thats just for something I need "right now" and its convenient to go there.

They probably sell more guns than anyone else and they are anti gun? I have only bought one gun from them. It was a Henry lever .22 eight years ago for my youngest son's 10th birthday. It was cheaper there and most of the small shops had none in stock, so I would have had to order. I wanted to see the actual gun before I bought it.
If a guy is 18,19, or 20, he can easily buy a gun somewhere else.

More than you'd think I bet. Interesting question. I wonder what is the most popular caliber for gang/drug related gun shootings where the caliber is known and compare those numbers to the caliber used in gang/drug related deaths. We could then extrapolate from the data which really is the most effective at killing and make the whole process more efficient.
